Linda visits Santorini with Jonathan Perugia and some of our Authentic Photography clients.

Windmills in Oia

In June, I was lucky enough to visit the outstandingly beautiful island of Santorini with Jonathan Perugia, to make the final arrangements for our first trips to this Greek Oasis.

As a relatively new photographer and equipt with a brand new (my first digital SLR purchased on the advice of Paul Sansome) and lots of sun cream I arrived in Santorini, four days ahead of the photography group.

Friends had told me how beautiful Santorini is but I wasn't prepared for the beauty that this island holds. The famed blue domes of the Churches, whitewashed walls and perfect blue skies are only half of the story. The other half is the character, charm and warmth of the local population.  Of all the places I have visited in the world, I can honestly say that Santorini is one of the most beautiful.

Demand for the September 2011 Holidays have been so great that we had to add a second week which also so out.

With this in mind, we can confirm that we will be visiting Santorini in 2012 on the following dates:

If any of these holidays are of interest to you, please call and reserve a place now. Once again we expect demand to be high and so places will sell out quickly.

But don't take my word for it, let the photographs speak for themselves (remember it's a complete beginner taking these photos)
